Curriculum Goals

The general curriculum includes core courses and courses in liberal arts education.
To foster students’ fundamental academic skills and respect for democracy, the core courses include the subjects of Chinese, English, Chinese Constitution and Law, and History and Culture. To expand students’ knowledge learned from the core courses and further explore their interests in differing academic fields, courses of liberal arts education include Physical Education and the following subjects—Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts, Natural and Applied Sciences, Life Sciences, General Education Lectures, General Education Passport, Moral Education of each college, and applied courses of a variety of fields.

The current goals of CGE include the following:

1. Teachers can better understand and practice the notion of the well-rounded education.

2.

After careful research on the other universities’ curricula, the content of the core courses, including Chinese, English, History and Culture, and Chinese Constitution and Law, are to be adjusted. Chinese courses will focus on writing and reading Chinese literature. English courses will aim to improve students’ listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. In addition, the curriculum design of History and Culture will be theme-based. Furthermore, courses in liberal arts education aim to be more multicultural and interdisciplinary in order to better prepare students for their academic studies and future careers.
